Cathy the owner of Headpin Wear, lives in the little town of Benicia, CA, with her husband and youngest son. Her full time job is working for an Auto Processing Company, and the commute is heavenly, a whole 1.7 miles from home. And although her "full-time job" hasn't exactly been a full-time job lately due to the economy, she tries to look on the bright side of things and knows that she is blessed in so many other ways that are more important to her and she refuses to complain!
She started designing jewelry a few years ago and really just wanted to make jewelry for herself that would be unique and would complement her apparel. She has found that she needs to be "in the mood" to create and is not someone who can just sit down and make something just for the sake of making it. She is thoughtful and meticulous in the complete design from start to finish. And although her jewelry is simplistic, it is always quality work that goes into each piece. (ssshhh!! She claims to be a perfectionist in hiding!!)
Here are just a few pieces that caught my eye while browsing her store.
